Control Line Of Scrimmage
Coach Matt Luke and coach Jack Bicknell have found a large amount of success behind this offensive line this season. The Rebels offensive line if one of the largest and most experienced in the SEC and need to use that size and experience to control the line of scrimmage against a very good Auburn defensive front. So far the Rebels O-line has been pretty solid and all are healthy after 7 games which is great.
While the Rebels offense has found greater success this season in the run game because of the size and experience of the front there is room for improvement. So far the O-line has only allowed 12 sacks and while that may not sound like much keep this in mind. Not only is it the 4th most allowed in the SEC but after 7 games Alabama has only allowed 4. To have success Saturday and get a win the Rebel O-line must control the line of scrimmage and protect Ta’amu.
